British girl with Florida RN Licence looking to move back to USA

Hello :) I've been a lurker on this site for years - from my first year as a nursing student and now coming onto my third year after graduation.

It's been a long road, and I couldn't possibly go into all the gory and bitter details, but I am currently living in the UK, unable to get work as a nurse after 2 years of trying.

I've decided that it might be time to make the expensive trip back to the USA and be the person I spent four years training to be.... in the year that I was a nurse in Florida, I was a pretty good one. But I've reached the limit of desperation and I know that I will lose my skills if I don't get back into it soon!

I've kept up my CEU's, and I'm about to renew again. I understand the H1B Visa requirements for working in the USA, but the part I'm at a bit of a standstill is where to find employment.

Does anyone recommend a USA agency, a hospital, or specific employer that takes on nurses with some experience and H1B visa applicants? EDIT: it doesn't have to be in Florida - I can endorse my license to another state if necessary :)

Not all nurses get H1b, generally they get EB3. The hardest thing is finding employer willing to pay $$ for either H1b or EB3 when there is a surplus of nurses already in the US. Best thing to do is contact hospitals in the areas you want to live and work in

hi have you tried the passport usa health carousel? I do not know what they are alike; but I heard different things about them
